I have several blogs I have been working on over the past few months and hope to get posted soon. Meanwhile, as many of you know I’ve been writing the astrology column for THIS! magazine which has just recently ceased publication. I’ve got the scopes all written up for January and February, so here they are! If you would like me to continue, let me know — I have an astrology website I’ve been working on and hope to take LIVE soon! Stay tuned and keep in touch! New Year’s Blessings!
We welcome 2018 in a big way with an intense Full Moon in Cancer as Uranus stations Direct. This means a very full year for us all! Things may feel a little unsteady based on the huge cosmic shifts that were triggered in December. Remember to stay optimistic; do what you can to be a force for good in your part of the world. New Moon on January 16 in Capricorn is a powerful day for New Year’s Resolutions to be set. Eclipse season launches with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 31 in Leo followed by the February 15 New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius. Valentine season could be dreamy with Venus moving into Pisces and touching Neptune – or it could be confusing and unrealistic; utilize your wisdom to decide which one!

Aries/Aries Rising (March 21-April 19)

Taurus/Taurus Rising (April 20-May 20)
Do THIS! You’re considering trips, courses, mind-expanding experiences and new connections with people, but you can’t be casual about these things.

Gemini/Gemini Rising (May 21-June 21)
Do THIS! Wow, Gemmi, finally some of the pressures of these past couple years should ease, you may find a new way of being in the world. Spiritual opportunities abound, meditate; also, sacred sex – YES. The end of February brings some interesting new career-related energy.
Cancer/Cancer Rising (June 22-July 22)
Do THIS! I know December was pretty bumpy, darling you need to take the time to ground down and be ready because January/February will bring you challenges that feel a little relentless starting with the Full Moon in your sign on January 1. Hone your daily routine so that it keeps you sane. Work-related stressors should ease a bit; be very careful with your committed relationship, whatever isn’t working between you can no longer be hidden; communication is key.
Leo/Leo Rising (July 23-Aug. 22)
Do THIS! Your daily work and health routines are going to be challenged and whatever isn’t really helping you MUST be re-worked. Loads of information will be coming in around the January 31 Full Moon Eclipse in Leo; something or someone has GOT to GO. You will be pushed to make hard decisions and choices; choose those things that help you to step into your power and make you want to ROAR.
Virgo/Virgo Rising (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Do THIS! Get those creative juices flowing, be sure to write down ideas – for best results, let your hair down a little, play and have fun! Children might be challenging or need more of your time. In February you are focused on your lover OR on finding one. Partnerships of all kinds are emphasized. Just make sure someone new is really who you think they are.
Libra/Libra Rising (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Do THIS! Financial opportunities are surfacing, just watch the tendency to overspend. Use the magic mantra of “no” often and well to conserve your time and energy. Home matters will come to the forefront and there will be some goodbyes. Resolve to create healthier daily habits to maintain your balance.
Scorpio/Scorpio Rising (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Do THIS! You’ve been prepping for this and now opportunities are flowing in. What do you really want? Saying yes to one thing means saying no to another, discern. Changes might be happening in your neighborhood or in your environment. Watch what you say and how you say it; you can be harshly truthful, and that might be even more true now.
Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Do THIS! Whew … it’s been hard, I know! But the hard knocks of the last couple years taught you things you needed to learn and you must take this new-found wisdom and share it with the world. Money matters and questions about how you spend your time and energy will dominate January. In February tend to home and hearth.
Capricorn/Capricorn Rising (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Do THIS! Sit down, my darling; take a breath. Because the Master Teacher Saturn moved into your sign in December. It is time to get your sh*t together. If you thought December was intense, wait for January. Big lessons, important decisions. Whatever isn’t working for you is going to break. Use your tenacious work ethic, and mend your life. The New Year for YOU is on the new moon January 16; launch your audacious year-plan then.
Aquarius/Aquarius Rising (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Do THIS! You cannot hide from big responsibilities during this phase; deal with unpleasant things using that classic Aquarian detachment. There will be pressure to deal with long-standing bad habits. February will bring a focus on money and what matters to you; your re-set New Moon is on February 15, and it’s an eclipse; fate will step in, notice what she is trying to tell you.
Pisces/Pisces Rising (Feb. 20-March 20)
Do THIS! January is going to feel a little like a haunted house; things will pop from the depths, old patterns re-emerging to be cleansed. So many opportunities to meet new people and be social, carve out time to ground down and conserve your energy. February is huge for you; many choices to be made, opportunity will knock. Some lovely love aspects too; just remember to love the person as they are – don’t fall in love with their potential.
